viiiv Pro Isometric
Tampa Bay's largest, most trusted medical aesthetic facility
Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay is excited to offer the viiiv Pro fitness machine designed to build muscle and bone strength to patients in Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, and other South Florida-areas.
What is the
"The Ultimate Biohack" is how author, personal development coach, and philanthropist Tony Robbins refers to isometric exercises. The viiiv Pro is a 5-minute isometric workout involving four stations. This comprehensive once-a-week workout can be done in street clothes without joint-straining aerobic movement or sweating. The viiiv increases bone density and significantly improves muscle strength, and those who use it are expected to double their strength in less than one year. It also can reduce your blood glucose levels.
How long will
each work out be?
The beauty of the viiiv Pro is the efficiency and speed of your workouts. Your first workout session should take no longer than 15 minutes, but with only 20 seconds of total physical exertion. These 15 minutes are spent taking your personal measurements, to ensure you are placed in the optimal position for each of the four viiiv workouts. Once in position, each individual exercise requires only 5 seconds of maximum exertion. While this may seem like a short period of time, those 5 seconds can feel like an eternity when you truly reach peak resistance.
Utilizing the viiiv app allows us to save all your initial settings, making all future workouts simpler and less time-consuming. After your initial 15-minute appointment, you should expect to only spend 5-10 minutes for future workouts.
How often do
you work out?
In keeping with one of the key components of strength building, recovery time between workouts is important. To maximize muscle gains, it is essential to allow the body to recover from the most recent maximum exertion before working out again. For this reason, it is recommended to wait one week between workouts to ensure your muscle fibers have had an opportunity to recover.
Why only one
In a traditional strength training session, you execute several sets with many repetitions. Every time repetition is performed across a range of motion, the movement begins with zero resistance, progresses through an intermediate resistance range, and finally reaches the point of maximum resistance. Because it activates the most muscle fibers, the last near lock-out position, where a maximum muscle contraction is attained, provides the greatest benefit—which is the goal of any strength training program.
The last repetition of a standard strength training session is always the hardest. The reps and sets that occur before the last repetition are a complete waste of time because they drain your energy and keep you from working out to your full potential.The only way to stimulate your muscles for optimal strength and growth is by forcing the body to use as many muscle fibers as possible during any given exercise. This type of stimulation can only be accomplished by exercising with the maximum amount of resistance while at maximum muscle contraction.
Duration and intensity are inversely proportional. The muscle will get entirely exhausted after a few seconds of maximal effort. No one can push (or pull) with their maximal capacity for longer than a few seconds. Yes, one can continue to exert some force after 7 or 8 seconds, but the peak force won’t be attained again until after one maximum effort and until a full recovery has been made. Therefore, for best results, only one repetition of each exercise should be performed during each training session. More than that will hinder your ability to recuperate and build strength.
How does viiiv Pro help
build bone strength?
Bones are made to support weight and perform tasks. When under duress, they adjust, develop, and get stronger. When they are not required to carry their own weight, they quickly deteriorate into skinny, weak, and feeble individuals. A healthy bone will die from disuse. A worldwide epidemic of weak bones is responsible for millions of injuries and incapacitating illnesses.Without a doubt, correctly executed viiiv Fitness training increases bone density more significantly and more sustainably in men and women of all ages, including those in their eighties and nineties, than any other type of exercise.A once weekly viiiv session is the secret to healthier bones. Depending on the individual, this improvement can mean improved athletic performance, reduced risk of osteoporosis later in life, rebuilding already weakened and thin bones, or better endurance in everything from recreational sports to climbing stairs or lifting groceries.
When will I start
Reaching maximum exertion is not an easy task and can take an adjustment period as you learn to reach peak resistance. The first several weeks will be used to provide a foundational baseline as you train yourself to activate the deepest muscle fibers through maximum intensity. After your first 2-4 sessions, you will begin to see incremental strength improvement, tracked, and displayed in the viiiv app. You will begin seeing improvement in just the first few months, and many do not plateau for several years.
500 adults (average age 52) participated in a 2-year trial that involved four workouts per week. They could initially lift 72% of their body weight. After two years, they were able to do 290% and their bone density had significantly increased. In less than a year, you should increase your strength twofold.
